After Hot Start, Yankees Looking Like Expected Flawed »

Through the first five weeks of the 2015 season, the New York Yankees looked good. Like, really good. Legitimately good. ... Too good. Sure enough, what tends to happen with teams that look too good has happened to the Yankees. After starting off with a 21-12 record that had them leading the American League, they now find themselves [...]

New York Yankees on the Brink of Disaster with Recent »

The New York Yankees lost their 10th game in the last 11 contests on Sunday, falling to the Texas Rangers 5-2.

Bryce Harper Must Be At-All-Cost Pursuit as »

Officially, the New York Yankees will be in the capital over the next two days for a two-game series against the Washington Nationals. But they can also do some window shopping while they're there, with one particular item at the top of their wish list: Bryce Harper. It'll likely be a while before the Yankees actually have a shot at him, but this [...]

Jorge Posada Risking His Own Legacy More Than »

For all of the non-talking baseball players do during their playing days, it's ironic how chatty and controversial they get after exiting the field for the final time and are trying to sell their own piece of media. Jorge Posada, one of the great New York Yankee catchers in franchise history, is the latest to stroll this road as he pumps his [...]

With Jeter Gone, Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner Are »

With five weeks of the 2015 MLB season complete, we've gotten a pretty good look at the post-Derek Jeter New York Yankees. And sappiness be damned, they just don't quite look the same without him. There's one way, however, that this has been a very, very good thing. With Jeter safely retired—and evidently disconnected [...]

Other Massive Milestones A-Rod Can Reach in 2015 »

Alex Rodriguez stands alone in fourth place on the all-time home run list after hitting his 661st bomb against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankees Stadium on Thursday, passing Willie Mays. The majority of the focus, and controversy, surrounding A-Rod has been about the long ball and performance-enhancing drug use. Lost in the shuffle is the fact that [...]
